As new digital services are deployed to help communications service
providers (CSPs) drive innovation, 5G core networks are becoming a
necessity to enable true service differentiation. This need is quickly
becoming realized, with two-thirds of organizations1 planning
to deploy 5G by the end of next year. Not only will CSPs be expected to
deliver a fully functional 5G network to meet end-user demand, but
success will lie in the ability to provide innovative digital services
and to fully monetize their 5G infrastructure investment.
Today, CSG announced the availability of its new 5G Dynamic Charging
Function, designed to help CSPs optimize their strategy to not only
deliver the value of 5G networks to customers, but also to optimize for
sustainable growth in the digital economy. This new capability fulfils
the roles of both the 5G Charging Function (CHF) and the Charging
Gateway Function (CGF), providing offline and online mediation
functionality in a single platform, while managing the complexity of all
interfaces between the network and the BSS functions.
“The revenue potential resulting from the deployment of 5G networks
should not be underestimated,” said Chad Dunavant, global head of
product management, CSG. “But the next generation of business, from 5G
to the Internet of Things, requires fundamentally new businesses models.
The CSG 5G Dynamic Charging Function gives CSPs the foundation they need
to capitalize and monetize on complete industry transformation.”
